Lake Manze Adventure Camp

Lake Manze Adventure Camp

"Great visit to Lake Manze Camp"

3 nights Arrived 22 Sep 2008
"Although the camp has only basic amenities there is a very friendly and relaxed atmosphere which makes for an exreemely enjoyable visit.

With elephants passing through the camp and good views of game when sitting outside the tent it is very rewarding. T

he drives are very good as there is lots of game in the area."

Sand Rivers Camp

Sand Rivers Camp

"The Sand Rivers Camp experience"

4 nights Arrived 25 Sep 2008
"The camp is in a wonderful position with splendid views over the river. It is a great experience to dine on the balcony looking down to the river below. The accomodation is excellent and the availability of electricity is very welcome after having stayed at a more basic camp. Early morning hot drinks served in your unit is pure luxury.

Would thoroughly recommend doing the game walk where we did view animals close by and concluded with a full breakfast in the bush close to the water. The game drives were enjoyable and usually you had your own personal guide.

Just a couple of minor complaints in that there was no choice of main course for evening meals although stated in your literature. Whilst breakfast and lunch were fully up to standard we found that dinner fell a little short of expectations and this view was also held by other guests we found during discussions."

Zanzibar Palace Hotel

Zanzibar Palace Hotel

"A stay at Zanzibar Palace Hotel"

2 nights Arrived 29 Sep 2008
"We found it a unique experience to stay at the Zanzibar Palace Hotel in the heart of Stonetown. You are woken shortly after 4a.m. with the calls to prayer from the many mosques in the area. A walking tour of Stonetown with a guide is to be recommended.

The hotel provides good accomodation but the evening meals could be improved.

We experienced a problem in that our voucher from you stated half board whilst the booking by Fisherman Travel was only for B & B. Staff at the hotel said that this was happening frequently and when we came to settle our bill they tried to include the price of evening meals until we pointed out again what are terms were.

For anyone visiting this area we would mention that many people try to get you to offer them a tip, even the staff at the security machine in Dar es Salaam airport."
